Dear Email Friends,
Below is the first draft, drawn by Merete Holst, of a poster for the first show of our coming season, Jan de Hartog's comedy, THE FOURPOSTER. You can click on Teaching Material below and download the production history and information about the author along with a summary of the play. It's free!
Casting has been completed for THE FOURPOSTER and we think you will be happy to know that Richard Burnip is returning to play Michael, and Janette Summerfield will work at The English Theatre for the first time, playing Agnes. They are pictured above.

Angus Pope played the role of Alan Baker in Neil Simon's COME BLOW YOUR HORN which we produced in the 2000-2001 Season. About six months after the end of the run, Angus unexpectedly fell gravely ill and died in London leaving us all shocked and very sad. The cast of the show, including the two actors who played his mother and father, attended his funeral. Angus starred in BLOOD BROTHERS at The English Theatre of Frankfurt before coming to Hamburg. He was a multi-talent, a singer, dancer and actor. He was also a very friendly person and a great company member. His last Christmas was spent in Hamburg and he performed for the last time here. Although his passing has been a great loss we can, at least, be thankful that we had the opportunity to get to know and work with such a gentle, loving and talented person.
